Hello! It seems pretty clear on my Instagram that I’ve moved to Singapore, but when I look at my blog, it doesn’t seem to have caught up!
I have folders of photos sitting on my desktop, some sorted, some unsorted and so many planned to be sorted and edited and shared but geez, it’s been a year (!) since my move back to Singapore, and there are still things to settle! As a result, this blog has been a little sidelined.
I need to remind myself that well, I was in Hong Kong for 6 years, and even with so many changes and things going on, 6 years was enough time for things to have settled. With that said, this marks the turn to Singapore themed posts, as I’ve been up to so much exploring here! Singapore has changed and definitely has a lot more going on now compared to when I left, so to start off, I have a nature themed post to share!
If you’ve visited Singapore, I think one of the most notable things about this city is how green it is! The tree lined streets, the plants and flowers grown all around the city. I love it and I think it complements the sunny tropical feel of Singapore very well.
When I moved back to Singapore last year, one of the spots I wanted to re-visit was the Singapore Botanic Gardens, which was named a UNESCO World Heritage site in 2015!
A huge park my family and I visited when I was growing up, the space is free to enter and open to public. It’s not exactly a tourist attraction like Gardens by the Bay (which I love too!), but for some quiet and peaceful time spent in nature, this is great! The Botanic Gardens is also a popular spot for picnics, photo shoots, jogs and even musical performances!
The whole park is huge, and there are several entrance points other than the main gate at Tanglin entrance (see photo below).
I should note that I entered through the Tyersall Gallop entrance and mostly wandered around that area, including the relatively newer section called The Learning Forest, so that is what some of the snapshots in this post reflect.
I was pretty excited to chance across this area surrounded by these shorter trees and with several swings located in between the trees! They were squeaky and loud but I loved it! :D
I hope you like this little look into the Singapore Botanic Gardens and hope you give it a visit too! ☺ Moving back to Singapore means rediscovering old spots, while also finding all the newer places I haven’t gotten the chance to discover during my time away. More from Singapore to come, thanks for popping by!
